Acts 13:26-52 Darby’s Translation

26  Brethren, sons of Abraham's race, and those who among you fear God, to you has the word of this salvation been sent: 27  for those who dwell in Jerusalem, and their rulers, not having known him, have fulfilled also the voices of the prophets which are read on every sabbath, [by] judging [him]. 28  And having found no cause of death [in him], they begged of Pilate that he might be slain. 29  And when they had fulfilled all things written concerning him, they took him down from the cross and put him in a sepulchre; 30  but God raised him from among [the] dead, 31  who appeared for many days to those who had come up with him from Galilee to Jerusalem, who are now his witnesses to the people. 32  And we declare unto you the glad tidings of the promise made to the fathers, 33  that God has fulfilled this to us their children, having raised up Jesus; as it is also written in the second psalm, Thou art my Son: this day have I begotten thee. 34  But that he raised him from among [the] dead, no more to return to corruption, he spoke thus: I will give to you the faithful mercies of David. 35  Wherefore also he says in another, Thou wilt not suffer thy gracious one to see corruption. 36  For David indeed, having in his own generation ministered to the will of God, fell asleep, and was added to his fathers and saw corruption. 37  But he whom God raised up did not see corruption. 38  Be it known unto you, therefore, brethren, that through this man remission of sins is preached to you, 39  and from all things from which ye could not be justified in the law of Moses, in him every one that believes is justified. 40  See therefore that that which is spoken in the prophets do not come upon [you], 41  Behold, ye despisers, and wonder and perish; for I work a work in your days, a work which ye will in no wise believe if one declare it to you.

42  And as they went out they begged that these words might be spoken to them the ensuing sabbath. 43  And the congregation of the synagogue having broken up, many of the Jews and of the worshipping proselytes followed Paul and Barnabas, who speaking to them, persuaded them to continue in the grace of God. 44  And on the coming sabbath almost all the city was gathered together to hear the word of God. 45  But the Jews, seeing the crowds, were filled with envy, and contradicted the things said by Paul, [contradicting and] speaking injuriously. 46  And Paul and Barnabas spoke boldly and said, It was necessary that the word of God should be first spoken to you; but, since ye thrust it from you, and judge yourselves unworthy of eternal life, lo, we turn to the nations; 47  for thus has the Lord enjoined us: I have set thee for a light of the nations, that thou shouldest be for salvation to the end of the earth. 48  And [those of] the nations, hearing it, rejoiced, and glorified the word of the Lord, and believed, as many as were ordained to eternal life. 49  And the word of the Lord was carried through the whole country. 50  But the Jews excited the women of the upper classes who were worshippers, and the first people of the city, and raised a persecution against Paul and Barnabas, and cast them out of their coasts. 51  But they, having shaken off the dust of their feet against them, came to Iconium. 52  And the disciples were filled with joy and [the] Holy Spirit.
